Traditional design is maintained on diamond. Because of not devaluing, diamond accessories continue to draw most attention from customers. When it comes to dressing up for the big day, you will certainly not neglect putting on some luxurious jewelry. For bride, wedding ring, necklace, earrings and bracelet are often worn. Take wedding ring as an example here. How to choose an ideal wedding ring made from diamond?
Basically speaking, “4C” principles need to be kept in mind, which refer to cut, color, clarity and carat weight. These are key points on identifying the quality and value of diamond.
Tip 1: avoid the cut place.
Most merchants tell you their diamond products are cut in Belgium or Israel. But most of these statements are false because only big diamond (over one carat) will be cut in Belgium. If your ring is not customized, you won’t get a Belgian cut work at all. Besides, even Gemmological Institute of America cannot distinguish the cut place of a diamond, let alone common customers.
Russia is also a great country that’s famous for cut work. But workers there mainly cut diamond that’s 0.3 to 1 carat. Diamond less than 0.3 carat is often cut in China and India due to cheaper labor force. After being cut, diamonds will be sent to be rated, where they need to be parted based on weight and clarity. Therefore, it’s absolutely hard to make the cut place clear. Girls, don’t put excessive care about the cut place of your wedding diamond ring!
Tip 2: choose a nude diamond.
“The whiter, the better” is the opinion held by many girls. But certainly, it isn’t. Diamond is divided into 23 ranks according to its color, ranging from D to Z. Grade I and J refers to diamond that’s nearly nude. Some merchants display these diamonds and sell them on a little cheaper price. But girls, you will easily find color on these diamonds has been slightly yellow if using a color swatch. You will find some diamonds for contrasting are shown in some large-scaled jewelry stores. Merchants list diamonds with different colors in a row, helping customers to make comparison. Actually, diamond without any color is the best! The more yellow, the more inferior it is!
Tip 3: pay attention to the clarity of an unprocessed diamond.
In a word, flaw decides the value of a diamond. More exactly speaking, each diamond has flaws, even though it features the highest grade. Some salesmen often persuade you to choose a diamond without flaw. So, this isn’t true actually. Most customers cannot distinguish a VVs1 and a VS1 grade diamond even with the help of a magnifier. So, it’s not a must to choose a VVS1 diamond at all.
A well experienced cut worker can make a diamond shine with dazzling brilliance. Inner rays of light can be reflected to the surface to the fullest. A perfectly cut diamond should be round, with 58 clear cut edge. However, clarity differs a lot between a nude gemstone and an end diamond product. Workers can cover some flaws while inlaying. So, to know the grade of clarity of a diamond, take a look at the certificate for the nude gemstone!
Tip 4: carat isn’t the decisive element for the grade of a diamond.
Carat was ever considered to be a conclusive factor while judging the value of a diamond. People even felt incredible while hearing of a two-carat diamond. But in fact, cut and clarity are as important as its weight. A two-carat diamond with poor cutwork, slightly yellow sheen and flaws absolutely carries much lower value than an ideally cut and transparent gemstone. Therefore, it’s of great importance to ask the jewelers to tell you the exact weight of a diamond. If they are unwilling to test the weight of a diamond on the spot, go for another store please.
Tip 5: a distinctive diamond is not always a good choice.
The more unique the style is, the higher requirement on inlay craft will be needed. Meanwhile, this means the diamond is more likely to be rubbed. On the other hand, an unusual diamond sets a higher requirement on your hand form. To sum up, there must be some reasons for a certain thing to become a classic trend. It must have already experienced test on many aspects.
